Benji's Story...
Benji was surrendered to Friendship with 2 of his housemates because their owner was too ill to care for them. They lived with a senior and came in in pretty rough shape. All needed to be groomed. Benji is a quiet boy that is 2 years old. He's a little shy but not nippy at all. This sweetie pie is not potty trained and crate training is recommended. Benji needs lots of tender loving care and probably some training. Because he's always lived with a senior it's best if there are kids in the family that they are over 12 years old. He's fine with docile dogs and cats. Benji would be a wonderful companion pet. If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benji, a Elyria Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Elyria, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Elyria breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
